Discovery NotesThis Phage was adopted on 10/31/2014.
Naming NotesRimmer, like many phages, is believed to have a large head. Seeing as you are what you eat, and this phage "feeds" on M.Smeg, it must be a "Smeg Head". Therefore this Phage has been named for the character Arnold Rimmer, a.k.a "Smeg Head", from the British Space Spoof Red Dwarf.
